Today I wanted to switch from DD-WRT to OpenWRT to have more functionality. Before I was able to flash OpenWRT I noticed, that the Webinterface of DD-WRT was not reachable ( blank page ). After further investigation, a lot of the services of DD-WRT were not running anymore and almost nothing was working.
So I wanted to remove DD-WRT and replace it with OpenWRT, but I had some trouble finding a way to flash it.
I am able to ping the router, connect to ssh (although my username and password are not recognized), connect to wifi, use DHCP etc.
I tried a hard reset (30/30/30) several times but nothing happened. I also tried to set my IP to static 192.168.0.66 and started a TFTP server to serve a new firmware to my router ( like described in http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wdr4900 ), but the file was never fetched. The router just instantly boots up and is in the same situation.
What can I now do to remove DD-WRT and install OpenWRT ?
Since this is not directly DD-WRT related I do hope you will be able to help me.
